5 Forces for the Future: Artificial intelligence powers surveillance

As public health focuses on prevention, clinical surveillance powered by AI will become increasingly important. AI-enabled clinical surveillance can help detect patients that are at-risk for a particular disease or predict infection before it progresses. Evolving trust in this technology will require expanded data access, transparency, and collaboration with clinicians.

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, the industry has witnessed the power of clinical surveillance. With a broad array of discrete tests that can identify a COVID-19 infection, health systems and public health authorities have needed a way to interpret and track the patients with infections.

By associating signs and symptoms, clinical surveillance has paved the way to better predict and prevent an escalation of the virus. But as valuable as those contributions are, they are only a glimpse of clinical surveillance’s potential.
